(Welcome to Comics Rewind, a weekly column devoted to discovering – or re-discovering – great comics published some time in the past. Here you will find looks back at comics published in every era, from the Golden Age to the Modern Age, as well as retrospectives on the work of important comics writers, lists of “essential” comics, and evaluations of important works, as well as works worthy of a second look or a wider audience. Enjoy!)
I was casting about all week for what I should write about this time out, and other stuff got in the way, most notably the talk on futures studies I was asked to give this morning that I then had to research and outline. I didn’t really have a fully loaded single entry in the pipeline, but then I thought about The Avengers and I realized we are giving a hell of a lot of love to corporate comics this month, aren’t we? So I figured it couldn’t hurt to throw some love to the little guy.
